HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- A cab driver escaped injury during an armed robbery Monday afternoon.
Captain Mark Bennett of the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department says the 27-year-old victim had been dispatched to pick up a fare at Whispering Pines Apartments in the area of 136th & Quincy shortly before 3 p.m.
As the driver arrived, the robber got into the cab, showed a silver handgun, and demanded money. The driver gave him an unknown amount of money, and the robber ran north toward Cascade Apartments.
Detectives are looking for him. He's described as a black man in his 20s, 140 lbs., 5'7", and wearing a black do-rag, a blue windbreaker, and white sunglasses with American flags embossed on the lenses. He also had a neatly-trimmed goatee, with more hair in the chin area, according to Capt. Bennett.
